HomeAid Atlanta’s Essentials Drive will take place April 27-May 5, 2015 in honor of Mother’s Day. The 14th annual drive to benefit homeless and indigent babies and their mothers is a community-wide effort to collect "essential" baby products. Requested donation items include diapers/pull-ups, baby food, infant formula, baby wipes, and baby hygiene products.

You can help!

Make a donation of new items at any public drop-off site located around metro Atlanta, including HomeAid’s office in Tucker. A list of 36 area drop off locations (with map) is available online at

Donations can also be made through HomeAid Atlanta’s baby registries at and (enter "HomeAid" for the registrant’s first name and "Atlanta" for the last name). All donations are tax-deductible as allowed by law.

Atlanta-based UPS is partnering with HomeAid Atlanta for the ninth year to assist with delivery of donated items to 17 local nonprofit organizations that provide housing and supportive services to homeless families.

The Essentials Drive was first launched by HomeAid Atlanta in 2002, and since then more than 589,000 essential baby items have been distributed. Last year alone, more than 155,000 items were collected for families in need!
